The second episode of "The Straits" found Firass Dirani's (Nick/Bowen, Mystic Force) character, Gary Montebello, getting wet on several occasions. Feeling banished to Zey Island to handle his family's drug intake, Gary meets up with Eddie, who plays a prank on him, leading Gary to fall into the water as he tries to retrieve some drug packages. The two run into a dilemma when a Sri Lankan man floating in the ocean spots them. Knowing they can't leave a witness, they rescue the man, taking him to the island, where they are quickly hunted by one of their meth lab employees, blaming them for his lab's explosion. When his fate is left in Gary's hands, he's unable to kill him and retreats back home, telling his father, which leads him and his brothers to take care of the issues. With them gone, Gary hangs out with his sister-in-law, Lola, who surprises him in the shower leading the two to have sex. Gary is instantly remorseful of betraying his older brother, but Lola reveals she only did it to leave him feeling guilty so that he will back his brother to run the family after their father's retirement.

Brad Hawkins (voice of Trey, Zeo) played a minor role in the two-part Season 7 episode "Team Cherokee" back in 1999. Hawkins played Wade Coltrane, a race car driver employed by Freddy Forbes, a ruthless businessman who plans to win at all costs, even if it means sabotaging his biggest competition, Team Cherokee, which consists of a group of Native Americans, trying to raise money to build a school on their reservation. Of course, Forbes' deceptive tactics soon fall onto the radar of Texas Ranger, Cordell Walker (series star Chuck Norris), leading him to get involved to bring justice to the situation. Hawkins appears in only a few scenes of the two-parter, mostly in racing scenes, as he competes for victory. Wade is shown to be oblivious to his boss's dirty tactics. In one scene he calls his team to warn Team Cherokee when he spots their car leaking brake fluid, but they do not heed his warning, hoping it will allow Wade to win. Brad Hawkins is the second PR alum on the blog for appearing on "Walker, Texas Ranger." Blake Foster was the first.
Season 7 of "Walker Texas, Ranger" is available on DVD
